High Monastery of St. Peter

Recommended
You can relax after a shopping spree at this place at the end of Petrovka Street. Three sanctuaries in different styles and a building for the monks make up this colourful complex dominated by red and white. In addition to the Church of St-Sergei Radonezhsky (1694), note the monastery's first edifice, a tiny eight-sided cathedral built (in 1514) by Alevesio Friazine, an architect who distinguished himself at the Kremlin. Finally, the Church of Our Lady of Bogolyubovo (1685) with its shingled onion domes contains beautiful 18C frescoes.
